Hey Vito,

17.5 motors don't generate as much RPM as modified motors, so yes, you are correct.

The way you get your speed with a 17.5 is by putting a big pinion on there. You must be careful though because with any motor, speed = heat. That is even more true in 17.5. If you want to go fast, your motor will run hot. Keep the temps under 150 and you should be fine. I would shoot for 130's to be safe.

One other thing is that you really should get guys at the track to help you with your gearing. We can only give general suggestions because we aren't able to see things like jumps right after a turn, sweeping turns vs 180's, etc.

Interesting. I might have to try it. I know that I was using Trinity Yellow Dot at our track last winter and it was pretty good. Problem is that it was only really good at that track.

In reference to the JC front axle conversion....

Last year I used a long button head screw and used it as a through bolt...then used a 3mm flanged locking nut to secure the wheel. I used a longer than needed screw and just cut the extra off with a dremel.

Worked great and never had to worry about my wheel falling off again.

I have never lost a 22 front wheel. Is this an issue people have? I did break an axle once, but that was the only issue with it.

lots of the 22 drivers i've seen, including myself, have lost a front wheel. blue threadlock makes sure that only happens once.

i can't say for certain it's always the same wheel. either way, threadlock is a much better option than left and right-handed hardware.

I've lost the front left a couple of time as well. You rub the left side of the track and it loosen the bolt. The TLR alu serrated ones never let me down though.

yeah, I used blue thread lock on mine as well with the non serrated bolt and never had one come off.

Thanks Casper. This was the type of answer I was looking for.

Let's see things I've tried to get car to not push and turn in.....

0 degree caster blocks,
Pink springs
M 3 compound fronts
Scrubs, tapers, slicks
Battery is all the way forward
2.5 rear toe in
Shortest camber link possible

Shawn Blackwell has been a big help in trying to get my car sorted out. It was set up like his yet his is dialed mine wants to plow hence why I'm changing the chassis, it's like something mechanically is right

Frank, you've driven my car in stock and it had that slight push still, now it just plows

I know it's a good car, I'm missing something

Could it just be your driving style?

Do you come hard in to the corners?

I was driving a 22 2.0 last Saturday owned by a TLR employee and it pushed for me real bad and come to find out he didnt have a lot of brakes in the remote and I love brakes so I had to ease up on the corneres with his car in my 1.0 i can come in hot and use my breaks prior to turning instead of having to go wide which was his line.

Just curious, I run the Exotek rack and not sure if that will cure your problem 100% but is a great up grade for my cars.

How's your diff? If it's super tight it'll push on power.
